HOUSTON -- When 7-year-old Will Erickson penned a letter to Jeff Luhnow imploring the Houston Astros general manager not to trade George Springer, he never dreamed hed get a response.The reason was simple.Because hes busy, Will told The Associated Press on Wednesday.Will decided to write the letter when he heard the Astros could be looking for pitching this offseason and might need to trade somebody like Springer to get it. His letter was straightforward. It said: Please dont trade George Springer these are the reasons. 1. He is my favorite player. 2. I get my hair cut like his. 3. He is a team player.It turns out that Luhnow wasnt too busy to take some time out to get back to the second-grader. He tweeted a picture of the letter with the words: Sound logic dont you think?Will said it took him about 15 minutes to write the letter and decided it would be cool to write one instead of simply sending an email after a letter-writing project his class did recently. He wasnt nervous about reaching out to a baseball executive despite being in elementary school.No, because it was just a letter not like talking, he said.Hes been to quite a few Astros games and loves the work of Springer, who is an outfielder.I like how he robs homers and hits home runs, Will said.During the week Wills bedtime is 8 p.m. so he isnt able to watch much of Astros games live since they begin at 7:10 p.m. But he DVRs every game and gets to watch his beloved Springers work from the night before after school each day.As for the haircut, Will decided to change his hairstyle after seeing Springers cool do, which has shaved sides and is longer on top. It was only supposed to be for a little while according to his parents, but now they cant get him to change it and say its part of his personality.Theres no curls (on mine) but its the same, Will said.After Luhnow tweeted Wills letter it got a lot of attention on the internet, with scores of people retweeting it and dozens of news stories being written about it. There was even a segment on the local news in Houston where his father discussed the letter that Wills teacher played on Wednesday for his class.They called me famous, Will said about his classmates.Will hasnt met Springer, but is a little worried about how hell respond if he ever gets the chance.If I saw him I would faint, Will said.When he isnt talking trades with baseball executives Will is a typical elementary school boy. He plays little league baseball and fit his first interview in between school and a trip to see Santa Claus at a nearby Christmas village.Its not much of a surprise what he planned to ask Jolly Old Saint Nick for on Wednesday night. He wants real snow or a baseball lesson from Springer at Minute Maid Park.Both are a tall order, but since Will lives in a place where temperatures in December can soar into the 70s, his parents arent sure which wish is more unlikely.

Claudio Ranieris side cleared another hurdle on Saturday as they won 3-1 at Manchester City to open a five-point lead at the top ahead of a Super Sunday trip to north London.Leicesters form has forced Sky Sports pundits to reassess the title credentials of a side that were 5,000-1 outsiders at the start of the season, but Arsenal can cut the lead to two points if they follow up Sundays win at Bournemouth with victory at the Emirates. Goals from Mesut Ozil and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain ended a run of four league games without a win, and Ramsey said: It was important to bounce back from the few important results we have had of late. We needed to do that, especially with the result that Leicester got.It was important to stay within touching distance of them. It is going to be an interesting game next week now. What they have done this season is quite remarkable. We have got to be right on it to get three points.Laurent Koscielny, captain at Bournemouth with Mikel Arteta and Per Mertesacker left out, said: We didnt play well during January and we didnt win a lot of points. Mathieu Flamini says his two-footed tackle was not malicious and he just wanted to win the ball.dddddddddddd. We needed to start a good run with this game and we stayed strong at the back, and scored two goals with our first two opportunities. We had three games without scoring so it was important for our players.Arsenal are one of just two teams to beat Leicester in the league this season having won 5-2 at the King Power Stadium in September.
